    Oyster Ceviche with Smoked Salt Tostadas

    Ceviche is classic beach food across the coasts of Latin America. Even though fish based ceviche is most common, oysters and shrimp are also terrific choices. We love this simple, fresh oyster ceviche as an appetizer, or use it to fill an avocado for a light supper.

    Quick tip: If you are too busy to make your own tostadas, simply buy unsalted tortilla chips at the supermarket. Place them in a baking pan, and heat them for 5-8 minutes in preheated 300° oven. Remove them from the oven, and sprinkle them with smoked sea salt while they are still warm.


    Ingredients
    For the Smoked Salt Tostadas
    1 1/2
    cups
    vegetable oil for frying
    4
    corn tortillas cut into quarters
    1
    teaspoon
    smoked sea salt to taste
    For the Oyster Ceviche
    2
    Lemons, Juiced
    1/2
    tomato, seeded
    1
    teaspoon
    maggi seasoning
    1
    ounce
    Thinly Sliced Red Onion
    1
    chile serrano, split lengthwise with seeds removed
    8
    shucked oysters (about 8 ounces), well drained
    Directions
    To make the Smoked Sea Salt Tostadas: Heat the vegetable oil in an 8” frying pan over medium heat about 2 minutes. Once the vegetable oil is hot, add the quartered tortillas, and fry for 2 minutes, then turn and fry on the other side for another 2 minutes, until they are golden brown.
    Remove the tostadas to a baking pan lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with smoked sea salt while they are still warm.
    To make the Oyster Ceviche: Place the lemon juice in a small mixing bowl. Using a cheese grater, grate the tomato into the lemon juice to add about a tablespoon of fresh tomato flavor. Discard the remaining tomato skin. Stir in the Maggi seasoning.
    Add the sliced onions, chile Serrano, combine well then add the oysters. Allow the mixture to marinate for 5 minutes, or cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
